elected to join the Reds after asking to leave Newcastle United with whom he had played during the war and scored at a rate of more than one a game. He chose the Reds over Everton and joined for a then record 12,500 in September 1946. After initially doing really well for the club he asked to return to Tyneside.

Bill Shankly
perhaps the greatest ever influence on the Reds ever. Shankly joined the Reds as manager in December 1959 and shook the club to the roots. Shankly then went about making the Reds into a great club and that's exactly what he did. He took the Reds out of the second division in 1962 as champions and three years later won the FA Cup for the first time in the clubs history. He later went on to win the first division title and UEFA Cup as well before announcing his retirement in the summer of 1974. He died on 29 September 1981. A true Great and profiled elsewhere on the site. Shankly actually appeared as a guest player in the second world war for the Reds.

Elisha Scott
arguably the Reds' greatest keeper ever. The Irishman first went for a trial at Everton but was turned down by them about his size and age. The Reds went to watch him play after Elisha's brother had words with John McKenna at Liverpool and bought him straight away. Scott never grew beyond 5ft 9in but it never restricted him. He managed to break into the first team just before the first world war. After the war finished he remained number one at the club and was until 1934. He managed 467 games for the Reds over 18 seasons for the Reds and would have made more had it not been for the war. Scott was capped 31 times by Northern Ireland in all and finally left the Reds in 1936 to join Belfast Celtic

Brought to the club by Bill Shankly he played regularly and scored regularly for the Reds reserve sides in the early 1960's before moving on. He later played across the water at Tranmere Rovers  
 
 
 
 
 
Graeme Souness
perhaps one of the best ever midfielders the club has ever seen. The original midfield general who played some 352 games(2 as sub) for the Reds and scored 56 goals. He joined the Reds from Middlesbrough in January 1978 for just 325,000 and made a huge impact on the Reds. he won three european cups, four league cups and five league medals before moving on for a big money move to Sampdoria. Souness later returned to Anfield as manager but other than winning the FA Cup in 1992 never had the success he desired. During his time as manager he sold his story to a newspaper not worthy of mention and this turned many Reds against him for the lack of respect towards the 96 victims of Hillsborough. He finally left by mutual consent in 1994

Ian St.John

During his ten year stint at the club he made an amazing 419 appearances for the Reds plus another five as sub and scored 118 goals which ranks him in a unique club at the Reds of having scored over 100 goals. His frontline partnership with Roger Hunt proved to be superb. He helped the Reds get out of the second division and then moved them on to FA Cup winners for the first time where he scored the winning goal as well as helping them to first division honours too. After his career at the Reds he joined Coventry as assistant manager. His later career found him in a tv role with Jimmy Greaves and todays is a pundit for radio

Tommy Smith
one of the great Reds who would have run through a brick wall for the cause. suffers these days for his exertions as a player and has very dodgy knees. He managed to play some 633 games for the Reds and scored 48 goals during his fifteen year career at Anfield. Probably the biggest moment of his career came when he scored the headed goal in Rome 1977 which took the Reds back into the lead and on towards their first ever European Cup triumph.

Vladimir Smicer
Smicer finished a Champions League winner with the Reds but his move to the Reds in 1999 saw a player of great potential never quite make it. Sadly this was mainly down to injuries which prevented the Czech winger from really showing his true worth but he was a player loved by many Reds.
